Woodforest National Bank recently hosted a grand opening reception for their new Community Development and Education Center in Columbia, SC. Woodforest co-workers, friends, community partners, and elected officials along with local small-business owners Indah Coffee, Rosie Girl Bakery, and Dimps Catering joined in the celebration.
The Woodforest National Bank Community Development and Education Center is located in the “banking desert” on North Main in the North Main Plaza. This corridor is a strategic investment area for the city of Columbia as they strive to build and revitalize the area through public and private investments and partnerships. Woodforest worked alongside local and regional small businesses Bricker and Beam, Franklin Smith Co., Stuyck Co. and M&M Construction to build out the center that will be utilized for small business and consumer financial education classes, and small business networking nights. Additionally, the center will be offered to area community partner organizations like Habitat for Humanity, Harvest Hope, Midlands Fatherhood Coalition, and What’s Next Midland in support of their mission through events, meetings, and classes.
“Woodforest is proud to be here on North Main and to help strengthen the North Main community by providing solutions to help the community succeed.” said Andrew Rabuck, Senior Vice President of Woodforest National Bank and a North Main resident of the Earlewood community.
